Stavanger offers an exciting mix of modern cosmopolitanism with medieval charm, attracting leading cruise-ship operators. Visitors tend to fall in love with Stavanger, especially "Old Stavanger", a very pretty and vibrant part of town. This area near the Stavanger Ferry Port is composed of small wooden houses and cobbled stone paths which are in complete contrast with the city's international and cosmopolitan atmosphere.
The timber town, Stavanger archaeological museum, the culture house and Rogaland theatre, Utstein Monastery church, the Canning museum, the Norwegian printing museum and the most famous Pulpit rock (an extraordinary natural rock formation) are just a few attractions in Stavanger. The Stavanger Ferry port is conveniently located in the centre of Stavanger, with bars and restaurants within walking distance.
Places to see while in Hirtshals include the Nordsoen Oceanarium, one of the largest aquariums in Europe with a collection of 70 different species, and the 35 meter high Hirtshals fyr Lighthouse, built in 1860.
01 Jul 2014Excellent ship, beautifully fitted out for an enjoyable voyage.
M/V Stavangerfjord is a brand new ferry powered by natural gas, making it an incredibly smooth and relaxing ship to be on. The appointments are state of the art and very comfortable. Worth considering if you want to travel from Stavanger to Esbjerg in a civilised fashion.

Försenad färja ostädat hytt och personalen i receptionen skrattade åt mig och min familj och ville inte hjälpa till över huvud taget. Fjord Line - aldrig mer.

04 Feb 2014Nightmare
I travelled on the Fjordline Bergensfjord, which the company literature led me to believe was new. Far from it; and in addition, too many elements seemed penny-pinching from the lack of decent signage, to the luggage store-room requiring payment every time you opened or closed the door, to the ridiculously small room between the seats (Ryanair would have been proud of this effort … a ship a couple of hundred metres long and yet seat pitch of about 30" if someone in front of you reclined!) Oh, and no seats beside a window, and no possibility of choosing seats, even at check-in. (At least I didn't pay for a cabin with a view — some of them had a view of just a wall. Not that there was much to see from Stavanger on.) If as a cabin passenger you woke up early due to the prevalence of snorers, there was no possibility to get to the outside decks other than the lifeboat level, as everything else was locked. I forgot to mention that the terminal in Stavanger is miles from the centre and requires a 36 minute trip on the public bus Nº9 - if one happens to be running all the way to the harbour when you need it. And at the Hirtshals end, it's 20 DKr – if somehow you've miraculously acquired Danish kroner!? You'd think Fjordline might put on a shuttle bus, but no, that would make life too easy. Finally, the disembarkation was the worst of all my ferry experiences around the world. The concierge desk sent confused foot passengers up to level 4, but finally the crew couldn't be bothered extending the gantry, and so eventually, we worked out the best way was to chance being run over by a semitrailer and exit with the cars from level one. Next time I'll go for the overnight train from Bergen or Stavanger to Oslo, then a train to Denmark via Malmo.
